Individual Development Plan and Speed Mentoring

Individual Development Plan and Speed Mentoring

(20 trainees/10 faculty members) Before the session, trainees complete their IDP. For the first 30 minutes, trainees pair, learn how to distill two goals that they’d like to discuss with faculty from any field, and practice with their partner. Final 30 minutes, 10 faculty members join and each trainee pair talks to three faculty members (10 minutes X 3). The triads are assigned before the session to limit chaos. Trainees like to be in a pair so they are more relaxed in chatting with the faculty member. Mentor-mentees have no trouble chatting for the 10 minutes, but I give some sample questions to the faculty member before to ease nervousness in working with trainees outside their department. I can share my slides and you can do this on your own. I would also be happy to lead the session.

Duration: 1 hours
